New AI algorithm flags deepfakes with 98% accuracy

DeepfakesWith the release of artificial intelligence (AI) video generation products like Sora and Luma, we’re on the verge of a flood of AI-generated video content, and policymakers, public figures and software engineers are already warning about a deluge of deepfakes.

Now it seems that AI itself might be our best defense against AI fakery after an algorithm has identified telltale markers of AI videos with over 98% accuracy.

The irony of AI protecting us against AI-generated content is hard to miss, but as project lead Matthew Stamm, associate professor of engineering at Drexel University, said in a statement: “It’s more than a bit unnerving that [AI-generated video] could be released before there is a good system for detecting fakes created by bad actors.”
